Wednesday, January 19, 2011 (2:00 pm EST) – A New Approach to Medication Reconciliation: Have you been frustrated with implementing medication reconciliation in your organization and to you want to try something new? Part of what Positive Deviance (PD) does is change how organizations think and work. More institutions tend to be top-down. Ideas start at the top and then try to work their way down. PD flips the organizational triangle on its head. With PD people on the frontline are the gurus. They know the problems and have the solutions. At the end of this teleconference, participants will learn to apply positive deviance ideas to achieve local success in medication reconciliation. Guest Speakers include Dr. Michael Gardam, MSC, FRCPC, MD; and Leah Gitterman, MSc., MHSc.
